City of Monterey Essential Services at Risk
In this time of crisis, the City of Monterey is taking drastic measures to reduce cost. At the Fire Department, the City is proposing to layoff three firefighters, remove paramedic level care, and eliminate reserve apparatus necessary for keeping our city protected. During this time, the City has also repeatedly stated that “public safety and saving lives” is the number one priority. In stark contrast to this statement, the City still wants to reduce service at all levels. If you would like to voice your support over these issues, please contact a city council member or the city manager. Check out Monterey.org for information on council meetings where your voice may be heard during public comment.
Through all of this, your Monterey Firefighters remain dedicated to serving you!
